I found this author years ago with her original Bond series books. She’s one of my top go-to authors when I’m looking for heartfelt but not overly simplified Christian romance books. And Her Easter Prayer is only one reason why. The characters are far from perfect and struggle with significant issues. There’s not much preaching at the reader but rather heartfelt and Godly advice from secondary characters, always driving home the point that no one is beyond God’s love. Easter is about celebrating the resurrection, and the hope left for us. Which is at the heart of this story, and it illustrates acceptance, kindness, and love powerfully.
While it’s a part of a series, it’s a true standalone title. I haven’t read any of the other books, so I can’t speak about whether or not they are good reads. But I’m definitely here for more books by this author.
